9/11 Truthers Lament Bob Novak: First to Call Terrorist Attacks “an Inside Job”, Claimed Israel Behind Attacks
While conservatives have shown themselves–almost universally–to be hypocrites in lamenting anti-Semitic HAMAS-nik Robert Novak, I have to say my favorite lament over Bob Novak (which shows how absurd the conservatives lamenting him are) is that of the 9/11 Truthers. (Sultan Knish points out Novak’s trutherism in his column we linked to earlier today.)
Bob Novak: Father of the 9/11 Truther Movement
The nutjobs over at WhatReallyHappened.com (hint: it should be called WhatDidn’tReallyHappenButNutcasesGottaHaveaPlacetoHangOut.com) are memorializing Novak as the first person in print to call 9/11 “an inside job,” just two days after the attacks. FYI, it’s in the same column in which he blames Israel for the attacks, but it’s toned down from when he said–on 9/11–that Israel was the perpetrator of the attacks because it, he said, “had the most to gain.”
Here’s what the nutty Truthers are posting in tribute to Dear Old Bob:
Interestingly, columnist Robert Novak was among the first to use the phrase “inside job” in connection with the events of 9-11.
New York Post, Sept. 13, page 59
“Beyond Pearl Harbor”
by Robert D. Novak
Novak’s first sentence:
Security experts and airline officials agree privately that the simultaneous hijacking of four jetliners was an “inside job,” probably indicating complicity beyond malfeasance.
He continues further down:
In the rage and mourning following Tuesday’s disaster, few officials wanted to dwell on how a 10-year hiatus of airline hijackings in this country could be followed by four in one hour. At a minimum, the blame can be put on ill-trained, incompetent personnel performing the screening of passengers. At the worst, security experts fear collusion with terrorists, possibly even extending to the cockpit. This is a subject that the airlines are loathe to discuss.
By the way, what the 9/11 Truthers don’t mention is that last sentence of the column by Novak:
Stratfor.com, the private intelligence company, reported Tuesday, “The big winner today, intentionally or not, is the state of Israel.”
Um, yeah, Bob. The pilots who had their throats slit were in on it. Uh-huh, Chick Burlingame was in on it with the Israelis. And it was all a nasty evil plot by those dirty Zionist kikes to make Islam look bad.
Gee, why do I feel like I was just reading Al-Ahram or watching Al-Arabiya?
Uh-huh, this is the “conservative,” National Review, Michelle Malkin, and all the other ignoramus hypocrites on the right are memorializing as some sort of saint.
But, hey, this Truther–the father of 9/11 Trutherism–is a conservative. So that means he’s great and never was a truther, right? I wonder what Malkin’s friend, Debra Burlingame (the late 9/11) pilot’s sister thinks of her praising this Truther who claims “the cockpit” was in on the plot? (She gave Malkin some sort of token of her brother’s. I guess the token didn’t mean that much.)
